Snowflake Socks

I'm.... unhappy. I get to a VERY nice spot in my knitting... almost being done... and I have to rip them back. It's happened 3 times so far. These socks are taking FOR-EV-ER. I just want them to be done.

Rip 1: Gauge is too tight. I have to rip back to before the heel turn. I can't get them on.
Rip 2: I made a big very noticeable boo boo after the heel turn and have to rip 10 rows back. RIP!
Rip 3: It doesn't fit over my calf. Time to rip back 20 rows and move up to a larger needle. I'm gonna have to go up ANOTHER needle size soon. I just know it.

*whine* Are we there yet? D=

I'm a horrible procrastinator. Sort of. ^_^;; Anyways, I told many of my friends, I'd knit them something for xmas... which I did and fairly on time as well.

Well... their gifts are still sitting in my house. I haven't found the time nor energy to mail them out. I should do that soon. ;_;

In other news, I'm working on a pair of Snowflake Socks from Magknits. I'm using the new Noro Kureyon Sock yarn. It's a little.... fiddly, but I like the colors. I have NEVER knit socks that long. O_o But at least I have something to knit while visiting my dad. (Dad had a stroke the day before New Years. He's ok! He just needs some rehab for his leg.) Sometimes I wonder if he gets annoyed that I turn his room into a knitting meeting (since my mom knits too). ^_^ Well... he hasn't complained yet, so I guess it's ok.
